Tylehurst is a magnificent Grade II Listed detached Georgian villa benefiting from generous landscaped grounds of over half an acre, with uninterrupted views over the city of Bath and the surrounding hillsides. Situated just off Sion Hill, the property occupies a highly sought-after, south-facing location in one of the most desirable residential addresses in the city.

Approached via a discreet driveway, automatic wrought iron gates lead to a generous courtyard with parking for numerous cars at the rear of the house. Constructed of mellow Bath stone elevations under a slate tiled roof, this magnificent detached family house is listed Grade II. The property has been the subject of a substantial refurbishment programme over recent years and is presented in immaculate decorative order. Contemporary fixtures and furnishings and high quality decoration sit well alongside many original features typical of the period. All improvements both decorative and structural have been implemented with considerable style and meticulous attention to detail.

Upon entering, there is an entrance porch that leads into a fine reception hall, with stone floor, decorative cornicing, and a stone staircase with mahogany handrail rises to the first floor. There is a beautiful double drawing room with wooden floors and fireplaces at each end. The cornicing is exquisite and south-facing windows afford fine views over the gardens to the city beyond. Doors also lead out on to the terrace.

Of particular note is the stunning kitchen/dining room. Over 30 feet in length and nearly 20 feet in depth, the proportions, light and views from each of the four pairs of French doors are breath-taking. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke furniture, an Aga and a large island unit that incorporates modern appliances. Off the kitchen is a utility room and cloakroom.

Also on the ground floor is a formal sitting room, informal TV room and study.

On the first floor is the most incredible and luxurious master suite. An impressive bedroom, dressing room and bathroom all face south with amazing views. There are three further bedrooms and bath/shower rooms within the main house.

Accessed externally is a guest cottage that requires some decorative improvement offering a fifth bedroom and bathroom.

Externally the gardens and grounds are superb. There is a generous courtyard with extensive parking for a number of vehicles to the front of the house. At the rear is a magnificent Bath stone terrace that runs the entire width of the property. There are far-reaching, uninterrupted views over the Approach Golf Course towards the city of Bath and surrounding hillsides. The terrace incorporates a heated outdoor swimming pool that also has a changing facility and shower.

The landscaped, south-facing gardens run to over half an acre and are mainly laid to lawn. There are areas of formal planting that provide points of interest and scale, as well as privacy and seclusion. There is even a boules court.
